Tarn & Fell Escapes is an independent holiday letting agency that was established after years of loving The Lake District.
You might be wondering where our name came from. After spending two years working in the French Alps, I swapped skiing and snow topped mountains for open water swimming in nearby tarns and the beauty of the local fells. It wasn’t long before I knew this was where I wanted to create my nest. I’d found my escape. I spent a long time considering how best to share my love for The Lakes, so with industry experience under my belt and with my enthusiasm for excellent hospitality behind everything that I do, I’m delighted to be welcoming you to Tarn & Fell Escapes.
Although I’m originally from Lancashire, I’ve spent much of my life in The Lake District, getting to know what it meant to be Cumbrian and exploring everything the area has to offer. I’m committed to sharing my local knowledge and helping you create your own Lake District memories. With a dedicated and personal service at the forefront of what we offer, it’s my vision to be recognised as Cumbria’s number one agent for self-catering accommodation.
We can’t wait to share this journey with you and look forward to welcoming you to one of our escapes soon.

The Lake District is densely populated with some of the country’s finest dining establishments. The Samling in Ambleside is a particular favourite of mine, though you’ll need to be sure to book well in advance.
The Fresh Air
There’s nothing I love more than getting out in the fresh Lakeland air; a steady walk around Rydal Water and Grasmere with a quick stop off at Grasmere Gingerbread is a day well spent for me!
Open Water Swimming
I love the invigorating feeling of open water swimming. Be it Windermere, or the slightly quieter High Dam, both are ideal for a morning wake-up swim or a relaxing evening dip.
